Kelly and Krzysztof's Wedding - Immaculate Heart of Mary Church and Grand Concourse

September 20th, 2014 - Violin Ceremony, Piano Cocktail Hour, DJ Reception

Kelly and Krzysztof said their "I Do's" at the historical Immaculate Heart of Mary Church on Polish Hill. The acoustics in the church were amazing and perfect for solo violin performance. Sarah played various classical selections during the prelude followed by Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring, for their grandmothers' and mothers' processional.

Jake, our pianist, played classical, love, and pop songs during their cocktail hour at the Grand Concourse. After the bride and groom's grand entrance down the staircase to, I Believe in a Thing Called Love, they enjoyed a polish tradition in which Kellly and Krzysztof were presented with water, bread, and wine by the groom's parents.

Kelly and Krzysztof danced their first dance in beautiful ballroom style to The Way I Am, by Ingrid Michaelson.

The bride and groom enjoyed dancing the night away with their guests to Ant's Marching, Heaven, I Wanna Dance With Somebody, This Is How We Do It, Don't Stop Believing, Brick House, Blurred Lines, and specially requested "disco polo" music to name a few.


Congratulations to Kelly and Krzysztof!
